I distinctly remember reading a short article in the 1990s about a visit to a Beijing? cloisonne workshop, wherein the craftswomen explained that they were working to earn valuable foreign exchange.

What I cannot distinctly remember is if the article was in Lapidary Journal, Ornament, Bead & Button. . .

And for some reason Robert Liu and Paddy Kan are vaguely connected in my memory as well.

Can anyone else recollect this article?

Hello Chris,

Offhand, the only article(s) I recall that were team-written by Robert and Paddy, were specifically about the Boshan glass industry. The makers of distinctive millefiori beads—but historically many other torchwork beads and products. Paddy went to Boshan, and was allowed to document their processes. The Boshan industry (and history) was also covered, to some degree, by Simon Kwan in his book, Early Chinese Glass (2001).

I cannot think of an exposition about cloisonné. I will ask Robert if he produced or published one.

Thanks, Jamey. It was more of a short filler piece than a full article.

So annoying that I cannot find it.

Robert says he did not cover cloisonné with Paddy Kan.
